Bishop: Decree Modifying Deaneries

The Most Reverend Frank J. Caggiano
By the Grace of God and the Authority of the Apostolic See

Bishop of Bridgeport

DECREE MODIFYING SEAT OF WISDOM DEANERY AND QUEEN ASSUMED INTO HEAVEN DEANERY

Canon 374 §2 establishes that: To foster pastoral care by means of common action, several neighboring parishes can be joined together in special groups, such as Vicariates Forane. These vicariates are denominated Deaneries in the Diocese of Bridgeport.

Upon receiving a request from the Pastor of Notre Dame Parish to transfer to the neighboring deanery, and, having consulted with the Deans of the respective deaneries, and, having weighed the pastoral reasons for modification, I, Most Rev. Frank J. Caggiano, Bishop of Bridgeport, do hereby modify the following Deaneries:

  1. Seat of Wisdom Deanery will be modified so as to exclude Notre Dame Parish.
  2. Queen Assumed into Heaven Deanery will be modified so as to include Notre Dame Parish.

This decree takes effect as of its signing.

Given this 31st day of July, 2019, the Feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, at the Catholic Center of the Diocese of Bridgeport.
